Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

I am afraid that Ana without top 10 ranking after WB would probably be pissed. I know it's her own fault, AGAIN, but still... Rooting for Maria tomorrow.

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

If Bouchard wouldn't be *probably* playing Maria in the QF... I hope she makes the semis.

Ana doesn't deserve to be in the Top 10, she just doesn't.


DO NOT use the delays as an excuse. If you have champions mentality, you would fight through everything. And Ana does NOT have that.

Ofcourse she did. Unlike Ana, Bouchard actually uses her chances.

I wonder if Ana ever comes back to win a set, at least.

She came back after the break playing beyond poor.. got lucky Lisicki missed every return in that 5-3 game in the 2nd. But she was already flat and showing no fight, no spark. Once she got broken, she just gave up.. wasn't even moving to balls anymore. That's first in the mind, which translates to her serve.. and then to the rest of her shots.

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

I just can't blame Ana for anything today Sabin was serving at 120 mph in the 3rd set and a lot of delays and shit that killed her concentration >>>>the girl is working hard for a year now and we saw a great improvement day after day

It was the draw again then the dark and the rain and the opponents serve

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

When Ana is playing like shit, I swear the sets pass by so quickly. It's like there is just a fast forward button to her losing the match. So damn pathetic, she doesnt stop to think, or reassess, or fight in any way. It's just panic, as if she is drowning or some bullshit, all the way to a quick death. The reality is she is only drowning in her own stupidity

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

Ok guys, I know we are angry, but Ana has more titles than any top 10 player bar Serena and Maria. Hell, Jankovic and Cibulkova (despite AO final), at this moment, should not be in top 10 either.

We never actually expected her to be serious contender at WB and grass, and she collected around 600 points, which is still very good result.

Maria must beat Bouchard tomorrow. There are too many reasons for that. Not only Ana's top 10 ranking.

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

Bitchard reached at least the QF in every GS this year. So much luck in draws. Fuck her.

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

But seriously guys, there's no much you can do against Sabine if she serves like that.

Give some credit to Sabine, thanks.

It wasn't only Ana's fault, yes, she served really bad during that third set and her attitude was bad as well, but Sabine was a better player and deserved to win. Don't act like Ana gifted her this match because she didn't.

Come on Bouchard! You deserve it. Making to QF or better in every slam this season.. way better than some perpetually 3rd round peasant.. who thinks she is doomed by the heavens at first sight of adversity.

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

I don't care if Ana slumps again to top 11, after Wimby. I just want Sabine to destroy Halep and Maria with Bitchard.

Ana was really unlucky here. But you also earn your own luck. Bouchard stepped up to the plate every time she needed to beat a highly-ranked player and only lost to the eventual champion in every Slam so far.
